Ch7. Chromosome Mutation Variation in Number and Arrangement. Although most members of diploid species normally contain precisely two haploid chromosome sets, many known cases vary from this pattern.
Although most members of diploid species normally contain precisely two haploid chromosome sets, many known cases vary from this pattern.
Modifications include a change in the total number of chromosomes, and changes of chromosomal structures, the deletion or duplication of genes or segments of a chromosome, and rearrangements of the genetic material either within or among chromosomes.
Euploidy(整倍体): monoploidy and polyploidy
polyploidy :Autopolyploidy(同源) Allopolyploids(异源)
Aneuploidy(非整倍体): loss 2n- 1 or more and add 2n+1 or more of the whole set of chromosomes
Cri-du-Chat animal species is at first quite puzzling, since at least a single copy of every gene is present in the remaining homolog. Syndrome
In humans, autosomal monosomy has not been reported beyond birth. There are, however, examples of survivors where only part of one chromosome is lost. These cases are sometimes referred to as segmental deletions.
One such case was first reported by Jerome LeJeune in 1963 when he described the clinical symptoms of the cri-du-chat (cry of the cat) syndrome. This syndrome is associated with the loss of part of the short arm of chromosome 5 (Figure 7-2). of
Thus, the genetic constitution may be designated as 46,5p-, meaning that such an individual has all 46 chromosomes but that some

Two pairs of homologous chromosomes are followed. While each chromosome has replicated its DNA earlier during interphase, the chromosomes do not appear as double structures until late prophase. When anaphase fails to occur normally, the chromosome number doubles if the cell reenters interphase.

Species 2 contains genome 6 consisting of two distinct chromosomes, b1 and b2.
Following fertilization between members of the two species and chromosome doubling, a fertile amphidiploid containing two complete diploid genomes (AABB) is formed.

Gene Redundancy and Amplification染色体结构的变异，一般认为，来自于染色体或染色单体的断裂—Ribosomal RNA Genes
Although many gene products are not needed in every cell of an organism, other gene products are known to be essential components of all cells. For example, ribosomal RNA mustbe present in abundance in order to support protein synthesis. The more metabolically active a cell is, the higher is the demand for this molecule. We might hypothesize that a single copy of the gene encoding rRNA is inadequate in many cells. Studies using the technique of molecular hybridization, which allows the determination of the percentage of the genome coding for specific RNA sequences, show that our hypothesis is correct! Indeed, multiple copies of genes code for rRNA. Such DNA is called rDNA, and the general phenomenon is called gene redundancy.

7.11 Fragile two copies of chromosome 21: a normal chromosome and a second copy translocated to chromosome 14. When such a gamete is fertilized by a standard haploid gamete, the resulting zygote has 46 chromosomes but three copies of chromosome 21. These individuals exhibit Down syndrome. Other potential surviving offspring contain either the standard diploid genome (without a translocation) or the balanced translocation like the parent. Both cases result in normal individuals. Knowledge of translocations has allowed geneticists to resolve the seeming 脆性 Sites in Humans
Fragile X Syndrome (Martin-Bell Syndrome strong association was subsequently shown to exist between one of the sites and a form of mental retardation.
Fragile Sites and Cancer expansion has not yet been established, several factors are known that influence the instability. Most significant is the observation that expansion from the carrier status (55-200 repeats) to the syndrome status (over 200 repeats) occurs during the transmission of the gene by the maternal parent, but not by the paternal parent. Furthermore, several reports suggest that male offspring are more likely to receive the increased repeat size leading to the syndrome than are female offspring. Obviously, we have much to learn about the genetic basis of instability and expansion of DNA sequences
